Hennessey VelociRaptor APV is the Raptor-based SUV of our dreams


Click the image to open in full size.

Hennessey has just pulled back the sheets on what can only be described as a raging pile of awesome the VelociRaptor APV. It can seat up to eight, packs a supercharged 6.2-liter V8 good for a galloping 575 horsepower and if its anything like its pickup cousin, can leap small villages in a single bound. Apparently it can also withstand small-arms fire. The company hasn't announced how much one of these things will set you back, but we're guessing it's more than a handful of shiny pennies.

Something tells us that this truck is going to be mighty popular with border patrol agents.

Hennessey will also turn out an eight-passenger, non-armored version if you don't find yourself under a hail of gunfire on your typical commute. We're guessing that without all the weight of armor plating and bullet-resistant glass, the non-tactical version is quite a bit more entertaining to fling through the desert.

It is also going to take its' own small oil refinery to keep the fuel tank filled up...

The Greenies ran the big Excursion off the market a few years ago. Don't be surprised if they go after this one, too.

^^^ This is how I'd imagine the next gen Expedition since it's so closely based off the F-150
